Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.

Captivating Stop-Motion Dissections of Everyday Objects by Artist Simon Gerbaud

Simon Gerbaud

 

Artist Simon Gerbaud has created a series of animations involving the incremental destruction of various objects like shoes and hairdryers as well as larger things like refrigerators and shopping carts. While the stop motion creations are strangely satisfying to watch on their own, Gerbaud has used them in several interactive installations in the past.

At the XII Feria de las Calacas in Mexico in 2012, the footage was synched to audience activated sensors so that the objects would disappear (or reappear) according to people’s movements, noises or breathing in the room. Check out more images and video of Gerbaud’s fascinating work below!

If you’re an animator looking for inspiration make sure you peep the animation section of Booooooom TV. We’re working hard to make it a collection of the best animated work on the Internet. Here’s a few recommendations:

1. A barrage of short animations by Max Litvinov (a personal fav)

2. Jurriaan & Merijn Hos’ spectacular work for Down The Rabbit Hole Festival

3. Manabu Himeda has lost his mind – this animation is CRAZY!

BONUS: Missed posting this one when I was away in Japan – “Johnny Bubble” by Alan Resnick is an absurd masterpiece.
